Plan for your future, and that of your loved ones.
Writing a Will gives you the reassurance that your wishes will be met, and that your estate will be distributed to the people and causes that you care about.
Making a Will is important for many reasons, by taking the time to plan your future you can ensure your wishes are met. You may want to ensure the passing of your assets / specific items to the ones you care about, or to leave a gift to a favourite cause.
If you don’t make a will, your estate may be distributed by the state according to intestacy rules. This means your estate is divided in a pre-determined way and this may not be to the people who you wanted to benefit.
Age UK Isle of Wight (Age UKIW) is proud to be working with local legal firms to offer all Island residents over the age of 50 a discounted Will Writing Scheme throughout March 2018. In return for a donation of £75 (Single Will) or £150 (Joint Will) to Age UKIW all of the participating legal firms will write you a basic will.*
There are three local legal firms involved in the scheme this year, with staff from Glanvilles Legal Services, Paul Wheeler Solicitor and Walter Gray & Co. Solicitors generously donating their time and expertise.
Elisha Leachman, Fundraising Manager, said:
“Writing a will is something that we all put off, but need to make sure we do. By having a Will professionally written you are able to protect the people and causes that you love and care most about. The Age UKIW Will Writing Scheme offers peace of mind to participants, along with the added bonus of donating to a great local charity, dedicated to helping older islanders live well in later life.”
